Description? Since libsas has no firmware, surely some explanation is
Indeed. Looks bogus at first glance?

I was finding all requested but not exported firmware in scsi driver
for generating dump initrd use.
In sas_scsi_host.c, request_firmware is called with "sas_addr",
sas_addr neither builtin nor exported. Don't sas_addr a firmware?
Please correct me. thanks

But once you export it, it needs to be found in fireware/ directory...
Not exactly, firmware/ dir only have a subset of all needed firmware. Also one can load firmware manually from anywhere
